The Essential Basics of Backgammon Game Plans – Part One

[ English ]

The goal of a Backgammon game is to shift your checkers around the Backgammon board and pull those pieces off the game board faster than your opponent who works just as hard to do the same buthowever they move in the opposing direction. Winning a round of Backgammon requires both tactics and good luck. How far you can move your checkers is left to the numbers from tossing the dice, and how you shift your pieces are decided on by your overall playing tactics. Enthusiasts use a few tactics in the differing parts of a match depending on your positions and opponent’s.

The Running Game Plan

The aim of the Running Game technique is to lure all your pieces into your inside board and pull them off as quick as you can. This technique concentrates on the pace of advancing your checkers with little or no efforts to hit or stop your opponent’s chips. The ideal scenario to use this technique is when you believe you might be able to shift your own pieces faster than the opposition does: when 1) you have a fewer checkers on the board; 2) all your checkers have past your opponent’s chips; or 3) the opponent doesn’t employ the hitting or blocking tactic.

The Blocking Game Technique

The primary aim of the blocking plan, by its title, is to block your opponent’s pieces, temporarily, while not fretting about moving your checkers quickly. Once you have created the blockage for your competitor’s movement with a couple of chips, you can shift your other chips quickly from the board. You will need to also have a good strategy when to back off and shift the chips that you used for the blockade. The game gets interesting when your competitor utilizes the same blocking tactic.
